    I spoke with Notus again, and in my task list (and in Journal) I have a record "enter Artifice". The task notes instruct me to talk to the guards to gain entry. Fine. I went to Artifice, and tried to talk to the guards, but they ignore me. There is the Welcomer guy in front of the entrance, who talks to me and instructs to go in. But the entrance does not work for me --- it is like trying to enter a solid wall.

    Did I miss anything? (I did this quest up to the entrance way before, but I spoke to Notus again, as instructed.) Another possible thing: I don't have a bonesteel dagger on me. Do I need it? Do I need any other object I forgot since last time?

    Thank you in advance.

    Sounds like a bug. Does the Welcomer actually welcome you or tell you to go back to Notus?

    No, he ushers inside, saying not to waste time, or something to this effect. No words about anything or anyone else.

    So far getting the same build in todays build

    Welcomer eventually says "please go right in" but the big golden door isn't solid but whats behind it is and the quest tracker doesn't advance, none of the other NPCs talk.

    returning to notus didn't help he immediately says go to artifice.

    Hmm... I did test it but I'll see again (with as little cheating as possible) to see what's up. Oh well, at least by the time you can get in everything will be implemented! :)

    Going off the tracker I would guess the welcomer is supposed to advance the quest but doesn't or doesn't mention the right keyword. The tracker still mentions talking to people.

    Did the same, went back and talked with Notus. Did not notice anything different BUT When I came back to Artifice and Talked to the welcomer and walked up the steps it zone me in to the Halls of Artifice. I did not click the door.

    confirmed if you were logged out in there you need to leave and come back. just getting started the decor is pretty good, but just like courage its a click quest, not anything else better reaction and issues in spoiler

    ok through, I think..maybe
    the decorations were interesting
    the labyrynth, just annoying, there is no discernible pattern I could see and the exit ends up being close to the entrance, probably intentionally but the silent teleports don't help)

    Got to Notus, he said his evil plan then I went into the next room and got the crown, (note that he said that I had shown restraint with the child masher, fact was the first time I went in the room I stepped on the plate(though I did go back while trying to figure out the labyrinth), the only way you would known to avoid it would have been to trip over it accidentally so this is...weird design).
    then down to the forge, where Hephaestus says some things then seems to complete the quest, but it still shows "find out more about the crown" went down into the library where I met Kiakis who seems upset but doesn't seem to advance anything and Peri who you seem to be able to psych up, which created a task to go back to Hephaestus and ask about your destiny again, who says "I already told you your destiny" however if you click goodbye and then the destiny in THAT dialog it clears the task but seems to try to go back to the same completion cycle as the first time I did it, I still have the "find out more about the crown" task

    from reading bugs in the other sub I never got the "find a faun" task, an again the find out about the crown still showing.

    so I went to leave and the door shows "exit to halls of artifice" but doesn't work.

    stuck in Artifice (without using a load to world map)

    Yeah that door and another one go to a black screen before you actually reach them.
